Your flex cord and cork that are attached to the flush handle probably needs changing or the flush handle itself might need some adjusting or need to be change also.

Call plumber. Check flush. Any of the part of flush like handle, ball cock or spring might have be defected. Replace all the defective material including ball cock/valve if required.

The chain connecting the handle to the flapper valve is probably not the correct length. It is probably too short. Try going into the tank and lengthening the chain connecting the handle to the flapper valve until the valve can stand upright on its own once you release the handle.
